My friend and I recently spent a week at the Tuscookany Cooking School, Casa Ombuto location. I have nothing but rave reviews! The setting for Casa Ombuto is stunning, in the mountains a couple of hours east of Florence. The accommodations are lovely and comfortable, with guests staying in a picturesque stone villa with lots of terraces and porches to... More

From the moment we arrived on a sleepy warm Saturday afternoon in mid-June, this multi-sensory-filled experience exceeded every expectation... & I had quite a few, not being much of a cook myself, but traveling with a real foodie & exquisite cook! Chef Laura Giusti is truly in her element. She worked easily with all of us at every experience level,... More

I’ve just returned home after spending a week at the beautifully rustic Casa Ombuto, to say it was truly magical is an understatement! Perched on top of a mountain and surrounded by forest, all you can hear is bird song and the bees humming in the lavender. My first concern was that I was travelling alone and may feel isolated...

The Mediterranean cooking week at Casa Ombuto was more than I ever imagined a cooking vacation could be. If you are a foodie, love to cook, eat, and would like to expand your Mediterranean repertoire, don’t think twice about booking this trip. Every detail of our stay was managed by an incredible staff, willing to please guests at every turn.... More

What a brilliant way to spend a holiday! We had just spent a week cycling around Southern Tuscany and decided that exertion deserved to be followed with some self-indulgence! Casa Ombuto did the trick. We selected the Mediterranean cooking course as my husband was not sure that he wanted to do a full week of Italian cooking - and we... More

Imagine the most romantic Tuscan setting - a beautiful stone villa set high in the mountains, surrounded by woodlands, fruit trees, roses and lavender, a HUGE swimming pool overlooking more of the above, smells of fresh bread, roast lamb, garlic and herbs tempting you back into the kitchen where a larger than life chef, Paola awaits. There are no words... More

When my wife suggested a trip to Italy, my one request was that we included something in addition to just sightseeing, and as the default cook, I began researching cooking schools. I found quite a few options on the internet and selected Casa Ombuto because of it's incredible reviews on Tripadvisor and it's beautiful setting. We arrived with the typical... More

My roommate from college and I decided to book our trip as a celebration for our 25th birthday! In the days leading up to Sheenah and the rest of the Tuscookany staff was happy to answer any questions we had. Once there Sheenah and the rest of the staff was extremely accommodating making sure anything we needed was readily available.... More

Casa Ombuto exceeded our expectations. Tuscookany plans the week perfectly, to allow ample time to cook (we really worked!) yet plenty of time to relax and enjoy the breathtaking surroundings of Poppi, Italy. Paola, the chef, works with you to create several dishes each day! She is great! The cooking class is limited in number (we had nine) so one... More
